Rembrandt, artist, born in
Bucks county, Pa., 22 Feb., 1778; died in Philadelphia, 3 Oct., 1860, showed a
talent for art at an early age, and was but seventeen when he executed a
portrait of Washington, from whom he was fortunate enough to obtain three
sittings, immediately after this, in 1796,
he went to Charleston, S.C., where he was
employed until 1801, in which year he
went to England to study under Benjamin
in London he painted some portraits, and in 1803
turned to the United States, finding sufficient occupation in Savannah,
Charleston, New York, and Philadelphia. He visited Paris in 1807, and again in
1809, to paint the portraits of distinguished Frenchmen, many of which
pictures were afterward placed in his father's museum, and to study in the art
galleries of the city. From the last trip he returned in 1810, and again
opened a studio in Philadelphia. He painted in that city, New York, Baltimore,
and Boston until 1829, and then went abroad again, visiting France, and
spending sixteen months in Italy.
In 1832 he
went to England, and established himself in 1833 in London, where he exhibited
at the Royal academy, but the death of his son forced him to return. Peale was
president of the American academy, succeeding Col. Trumbull,
and was one of the original members of the Academy of design. On his removal
to Philadelphia in 1827 he was made an honorary member. His numerous portraits
include those of Baron Cuvier, Bernardin de Saint Pierre, Jean Antoine Houdon,
at the Pennsylvania academy of fine arts, Thomas
Jefferson, Mrs. James Madison,
Thomas Sully, Com. Oliver H. Perry,
Rammohun Roy, G. W. Bethune, William Bainbridge, Dr. Joseph Priestley, and
Stephen Deca, fur, owned by the New York historical society. lake his father,
he painted Washington several
times, the last and most notable portrait being executed in 1823. It was
exhibited in the principal cities of the United States and Europe in 1829, and
in 1832 was bought by congress for 82,000. In 1859'60 he delivered a lecture
on "Washington and His Portraits" in most of the large
cities of the Union.
noted figure compositions are "Napoleon
on Horseback" (1810); "Babes in the Wood"; "Song
of the Shirt"; " Jupiter and Io" (1813); "Lvsippa
on the Rock" : "Roman Daughter"; "Ascent of
Elijah"; and "Court of Death" (1820).
versatility almost equaled that of his father.
He was one of the first artists to practice lithography in the United States,
gaining a silver medal at the Franklin institute in 1827 for a portrait of
Washington. Like his father, he lectured on natural history. He was the author
of "An Account of the Skeleton of the Mammoth "
(London, 1802); "Historical Disquisition on the Mammoth"
(1803); "Notes on Italy" (Philadelphia, 1831) ; "Graphics"
(1841) ; and "Reminiscruces of Art and Artists" (1845). He
also edited tile "Portfolio of an Artist" (1839), and contribted
articles and translations to the "Crayon" and other
